The topic of this collection of papers is the religious iconography of cult in ancient Greece. The book aims at promoting the understanding of ancient Greek cult of the Archaic and Classical periods through the presentation of new evidence and new...

Abstract

The Planudean, copied in the fourteenth-century autograph Marcianus gr. 481, was between the sixteenth and the eighteenth centuries the single known garland of Greek epigram, having had, therefore, a huge influence in modern poetry and culture in general. As a didactic text it was for Renaissance students of Greek and Latin, it was frequently their first contact with Greek literature. Poets and other writers made a large use of it. Erasmus is an example, he who copies and comments in his Adagia about 50 components, alongside Alciato’s Emblemmata, first published in 1492, where a much larger number of epigrams are illustrated, translated into Latin and commented. This volume offers in translation the epigrams transmitted by Planudes that are absent from the Palatinus, nowadays published as Book XVI of the Greek Antholoy. The larger part of them (356 out of 392) comes from chapter IV of the Marcianus, a collection of ecphrastic poems. Among them are the components dedicated to the charioteers of Constantinople (numbers 335-386), which archaeology proved to have been actually inscribed.

Abstract

This volume of the series Greek Anthology gathers, under the possible title Miscellaneous Epigrams, books IV, XIII, XIV and XV of the collection. First, the Prefaces written by the three primordial anthologists (Meleager, Philipp and Agathias). The remaining books, absent from the Cephalean garland as they seem to be, are mostly playful texts, poetic exercises on metrics (book XIII), arithmetic, riddles, enigmas, and oracles (book XIV). About book XV, it must be read as the locus spurius where the Palatine scribe put the pieces on whose poetic and semantic value he himself doubted. Special is the case for the technopaignia, ancient model of visual poetry.

Abstract

This volume gathers the two books of epigrams composed exclusively by Christian authors on episodes and characters of the religion that, from the fourth century onwards, became the official one of the Empire. Heading the Anthology, book I has 123 components said “pious and divine”, mostly by anonymous poets: dedications of monuments, invocations of Christ and the Virgin, ekphrastic and miscellaneous epigrams. As for book VIII, it offers a garland of 254 epigrams written by Gregorius of Nazianzus, one of the Church Fathers (Cappadocia, 329- 389), of which only 158 are actual epitaphs. The remaining ones are given in the form of prayers to the deceased one by their living relatives, authorial self-reflexions and, closing the book, a large series of epigrams (more than 40) against tomb-desecrators.

Abstract

Book five of the Greek Anthology gathers 310 epigrams united by their erotic subject. Taking the adjective “erotic” literally, it comprises both compositions of sexual theme and intention, with a more or less disguised obscene language, and others where a more or less violent expression of love can be read, similar to the one that would be found in medieval Iberian bards. Apart from a small group of epigrams that resort to Greek mythology, the poems address the most frequent and timeless symptoms and complains of the in loved subject, the often-contradictory feelings inspired by an Eros that Posidippus straightforwardly defines as bittersweet (num. 134).

Abstract

Il volume raccoglie gli studi presentati in occasione della XII Giornata di studi bizantini dedicata al Fortleben di Bisanzio nell’arte, nella letteratura e nelle istituzioni, in un intreccio di prospettive interdisciplinari che, attraverso la mise au point di problemi specifici, testimonia la documentata vitalità della tradizione bizantina nella cultura moderna, valorizzando anche il ruolo che l’Università degli studi di Milano ha avuto nella bizantinistica in tale ambito di ricerche. A questo hanno contribuito pure i molteplici interessi di Gianfranco Fiaccadori, al quale il volume è dedicato: per oltre un decennio ha profuso nell’Ateneo milanese entusiasmo e competenze, stimolando gli studi dei giovani e avviando ricerche tuttora in atto. Il ricordo vuole essere il segno di gratitudine per un evento voluto e organizzato con il consueto rigore, del quale purtroppo Gianfranco non ha potuto vedere concretamente i frutti.

Greek and Latin Expressions of Meaning : The Classical Origins of a Modern Metaphor

Abstract

Verbs and nouns of meaning in ancient Greek and Latin are polysemous, just as in the case of the English verb “to mean". Andreas T. Zanker considers how the ancient vocabulary could be used in different ways and investigates its development over time. In the first part of the book, Zanker argues for the role of metaphorical and metonymical transference in the creation of expressions of meaning; Greek and Roman authors used the same verbs to describe what inanimate things, including words and texts, meant/signified as they did of human beings in the act of meaning/signifying something. In the second part of the book, the author focuses on certain metaphorical extensions of this vocabulary and argues that they have implications for modern discussions of meaning, particularly in literary criticism.

Abstract

The rebirth of Ancient Greek in Europe was promoted by Humanist education and ideas to such an extent that we can consider the Greek language as a formative element of Humanist culture. Next to Latin, the default common language, a Humanist has to know and use Greek, because he is not, cannot and will not be a barbarian: barbaros ou pelomai, as Julius Caesar Scaliger claimed in his verses in 1600. Wreaths (stephanoi) have been the symbols of the cult of Muses from ancient times. After the love for Greek Muses had been revived by Renaissance Humanist poets and scholars, it has remained with us both in poetic activity and in scholarship. The Hellenostephanos volume presents a collection of papers by scholars who study Humanist Greek, aspiring towards another revival of Hellenism, and trying to avoid being barbarians. The volume includes papers by Christian Gastgeber, Gita Bērziņa, Janika Päll, Charalampos Minaoglou, Erkki Sironen, Kaspar Kolk, Tua Korhonen, Johanna Akujärvi, Bartosz Awianowicz, Jean-Marie Flamand, Walther Ludwig, Alessandra Lukinovich, Martin Steinrück, Tomas Veteikis, Grigory Vorobyev, Vlado Rezar, Pieta van Beek, and Antoine Haaker.
